City of Rocks
Reviewed Oct. 25, 2023

Great camping just outside of the park and close to town.

Okay all the photos and reviews for this site are for City of Rocks camping inside the park. The campsite according to the map is an entirely different campsite; so ignore all the information, pictures and reviews.

These are all FREE campsites. As the land is BLM it is public land and there is no charge. It is just outside of town and goes up the hill. 

There are probably 15 or so campsites ranging from single use to a few group sites. The road is very bad. Cobbles, ruts, some large rocks. There were RV's and some sedans so it is possible just warning you this road is rough. There was very limited Verizon service there.

Each campsite had a fire ring and almost all of the sites have a picnic table. There was some construction going on so it looks like they are adding more sites possibly. There is no running water and no bathrooms. Most of the trees are too small to hammock but some people were. Most of the sites were taken when I went in late October but continuing to the end of the road there were 4 or so spots left. 

It is just a few minutes from town so you can get to the hot springs or the restaurants really easy.
